In anticipation of the Spice Girls concert on Saturday 8 June at BT Murrayfield, ScotRail have announced that they will be adding extra seats to dozens of trains to and from Haymarket. This is in addition to all trains between Edinburgh and Glasgow that now operate with seven carriages.

Customers are advised after the event that the station is expected to be extremely busy and that a queuing system will be in place. Customers should head straight to the station after the event to avoid disappointment and extra ScotRail staff will be on the ground to assist customers.

ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell said:

“With a big crowd expected, we’ve been liaising closely with DF Concerts and have a robust plan in place to help our customers get to and from the show. We’ll be adding extra carriages to as many services as possible, and our advice to those planning to go home by train is – please carefully check your train times on our website or app, allow extra time for travel and leave Murrayfield promptly when the concert ends. Buying your tickets in advance will help make your journey run smoothly, but be aware, you will almost certainly need to queue at Haymarket after the gig.”
